Emergency Management

Mission Statement

To be a resource to the Community in the event of any substantial natural or man-made emergency. It is the role of Emergency Management to be a liaison with State and Federal resources which may be needed at the local level. It is Emergency Management’s goal to prepare a plan that will allow Pittsfield to be self-sustaining in any widespread disaster for at least 72 hours, judiciously using its current resources and to supplement as necessary, and to support recovery measures. Additionally, we will organize and fulfill obligations to remain eligible for any reimbursement in the event of a disaster declaration.
